S.A.D. SYNDROME: THE LAST GREAT MYSTERY OF OBSTETRICS
"Normal babies are dying needlessly during maternal sleep,"
says Jason H. Collins, M.D, "and I truly believe that half these
babies don't have to die." Dr. Collins is an obstetrician of twenty
years and has been researching Sudden Antenatal Death (S.A.D.)Syndrome
for a decade.
Dr. Collins has interviewed more than 300 S.A.D. families in his research. The research has indicated a succinct pattern resulting in his working theory that S.A.D. Syndrome may be related to fetal-maternal sleep and its effects on a baby in utero. S.A.D. can also affect infants during childbirth and in the early postpartum period. Collins points out that his research is likely to reveal many enigmas associated with early stillbirth and S.A.D. Syndrome. For more information on S.A.D. Syndrome, contact the Pregnancy Institute at 504-847-0607 or visit M.I.S.S. at www.misschildren.org.
